Hideo Kojima has shown Death Stranding demo to Scottish indietronica band Chvrches, and one of the band members, Ian Cook was particularly impressed. He said it's unlike any other game he ever saw but he's confident Kojima can pull it off.
Scottish indietronica band Chvrches have joined the list of people who had the opportunity to see Hideo Kojima's new game Death Stranding in action. And apparently, they were pretty impressed by what they saw, just like Grimes, Jordan Vogt-Roberts and others.
In an interview with consolevania, Chvrches' Ian Cook talked about the band's trip to Japan where they also visited Kojima Productions. Cook said that Kojima showed them around the studio and offered them an exclusive look at Death Stranding, which is unlike anything he ever saw.
"Some of the s*** he is doing with the new game is unlike anything I have seen anyone else do. I have no idea how he’s going to make it work but I am confident that if anyone can do it, Kojima can," Cook said.
Chvrches co-found also praised Hideo Kojima as someone who is brave and inspiring and "thinks like no one else."
A lot of love for Kojima-san from Cook and his quotes certainly conform with earlier reports about Death Stranding. We know that Kojima is trying to implement some sort of multiplayer component to the game. According to earlier leaks, players will have to work and decide together at some points in Death Stranding's multiplayer.
The game will apparently feature multiple timelines and players will be able to jump from one timeline to another but once the character dies, the specific timeline will be closed forever.
Mads Mikkelsen, who is by the looks of it, game's main antagonist also said that he "never seen anything like it" and that Death Stranding is "beyond anything we can imagine".
Unfortunately, Death Stranding still doesn't have a release date, and Kojima recently confirmed that the game is slightly behind schedule. However, the game does sound like a totally unique experience and we don't mind waiting for it if Kojima delivers his finest work yet.
